    So, doing an adaptation of a 6 volume/124 minute anime feature is impossible, but attempting to adapt a series that has lasted well over 350 episode is better?

    Looks like WB is more comfortable shooting for the PG-13 crowd instead.

    Name would make no sense to the majority of the US audience. Who the hell wants to watch a movie about a cleaning chemical? :D  1st Bleach, then the prequel: Mop & Glow.

    So did everyone just forget about Dragonball: Evolution, which was pretty much the same situation of a shounen manga/anime being turned into a live-action movie...?

    I don't see this working.

    You know, I'm pretty sure that I read in an interview that Tite Kubo made Bleach (or manga in general) in a way that it really couldn't be made into live action. Which says only good things about this "inevitable masterpiece".

    EDIT: Yep, here's an interview with Kubo from a 2006 issue of Shonen Jump (pretty sure I have the issue, but I have no idea where it is). Check out the last question: http://bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:Tite_Kubo_Interviews#Shonen_Jump_interview_from_2006

    Bleach lost me after the first 150 or so episodes of the anime, but still.

    $5 says Rukia will be a C-cup 18-year-old that Ichigo falls in love with.

    Number 1: every egoistic writer says their writing is unfilmable.

    Number 2: trust hollywood to fuck this up

    Yeah, I'd foresee a lot of jokes like this from the mainstream, if this ever comes out.

    You say that like Ichigo/Rukia shippers don't exist. I found a great Cosplay of Rukia somewhere but I'm damned if I remember what I did with the pic though.

    Besides I don't see this clicking with mainstream audiences; the way they approach death in the anime and the manga seems kind of esoteric and would probably piss off what little conservative element remains in Hollywood.
